They are perfect for mounting shelves

What can I say. This is a well-made lag screw. I hang a lot of heavy things in my small shop to save space. They are ideal for attaching shelves, racks, etc. to wall studs.

Sheared heads on lag bolts

Steel grade improvement needed. One broke off even though the holes were pre-drilled. After that, I began to tighten them extra carefully. The head cuts off easily even at low torques.

Poor quality material

Should have followed the reviews. I'm stuck in the middle of my project because of these inferior screws. I've shot down 6 and 2 of them have already moved out. Hand assembled, correct base size, pre-drilled and still sanded. Do not buy.

seemed a bit brittle

The screws were fine but felt a little soft. I used them to mount heavy casters on a trolley. I installed them into the pre-drilled holes using a Dewalt cordless impact wrench; I twisted the heads of 3 of 32 screws (10%). I wasn't expecting the impact wrench to come out with 1/4" screws. Since I've used them to attach the reels in predetermined locations, removing the non-hex lag screw isn't an easy process.

They break into pre-drilled wood before the head hits.

I find that the quality of each product seems to be declining due to these global logistics problems. I have old screws that work great in them, but these new ones just break under normal torque in soft pre-drilled pine. The thread doesn't even touch the metal bracket. I drilled a larger mount thinking that was the problem but now it is too big and still breaks an inch in several mounts. I'm only going to use a solid thread because if I pre-drill it any more it makes no sense.

Zero Stars - Two (out of 15) with a low torque cut down the middle

I'm inserting shelves into wooden 2x4 (behind drywall). The shelf measures 8 feet by 2 feet so is fairly stable with large brackets. Revain "recommended" these 1/4 x 2-1/4 screws. The first or second broke - the upper parts of the thread were torn off (see figure). I just raised her up a bit, didn't play Hulk. Just after it stopped turning "slightly" another 1/4 turn had to be made to tighten. Snap.OK, maybe a bad one? But still, I expected to replace them all. I had to finish, so I completed…
